“Location, location location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2010

The thing about this place is where it is located! Beautiful; view....yes we liked the frozen mocha...not the best ever but good! We also came back for a dessert later after dinner and sat on the back porch...magical at night with the twinkle lights and warm sea breezes....it was delish too! The service was the only thing I would have to say was disappointing...the staff seemed stressed...no smiles...no chit chat....almost as if we were an irritant. I was kind of surprised considering the small town feel of this place!

“Common Ground made me happy....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2010

Stopped in for a quick coffee during the Water Festival...ended up with an iced coffee and blueberry scone and just wandered outside and watched the croquet tournament.... service was fast...beans were brewed properly...life was good. Took some cinnamon rolls back for the rest of the household and they were gone within minutes!

“Wonderful Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2010

Stopped in there so my husband could get a quick cup of coffee(about 8 years ago) and got a frozen mocha. I figured it would be too sweet like all of the big coffee chains, but lo and behold it was PERFECT!! I bring everyone who visits us there for that same mocha and they go nuts over it. It is pure BLISS!!! Make sure you get the chocolate whipped cream on top!!!

Friendly staff and good coffee that's all a want out of a coffee shop and Common Ground delivers that. Amazing view from the porch and downtown access makes this coffee shop great.

“Great coffee & food with a perfect atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2010

I love dropping my this little coffee house while I'm strolling around Beaufort. Whether for breakfast or lunch, they've always got something delicious fixed up -- from muffins & pastries to smoked salmon wraps & tuna salad. I usually get my food/coffee to go & head out onto the porch overlooking the water.... pretty much nothing more peaceful & relaxing.
If you're in the area, this little shop is definitely worth finding -- you'll love it!!
